INSECTS: Hummingbird moth


   It’s a bird! It’s a butterfly! No, wait — it’s a hummingbird clear-wing moth.
  These moths may not be a big deal to longtime birders and insect lovers, but this is one neat bug, and it can be seen throughout the region these days.

The one pictured here was photographed at the butterfly garden at DeKorte Park by NJMC staffer Marc Schrieks.
